Unless specifically authorized, a county shall avoid duplication of other laws that do not enhance regulatory clarity and shall avoid dual permitting to the maximum extent practicable.
This section does not prohibit county flexibility to issue licenses or adopt ordinances or codes.
A county shall not request or initiate discussions with a person about waiving that person's rights.

Pursuant to A.R.S. § 41-1009, the Department may enter your establishment to conduct inspections. You have the right to receive a copy of the Department's inspection report at the time of the inspection, within thirty (30) days after the inspection, or as otherwise provided by federal law. I agree that the Department may send me a copy of its inspection report by e-mail or by facsimile transmission to the e-mail or fax number provided under the Business Ownership Information provided above. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to update the Department if there is a change in contact information.
I understand until such time as this variance is granted, I must cease operations that require a variance. I understand that by submitting this application and the fee in no way guarantees my variance will be approved. Also, the Department may initiate action to withdraw my variance if it is granted and an unforeseen health hazard occurs as a result of the variance. A violation associated with an approved variance may result in action being initiated by the Department to withdraw any granted variance, at which time a hearing may be requested pursuant to the Maricopa County Environmental Health Code. Upon withdrawal, the variance operation will immediately cease and desist until another variance is obtained.
